NEW HEATHER'S PICKS & INDIGO SPOTLIGHT

Indigo CEO and Chief booklover, Heather Reisman has selected three new Heather's Picks for the month of November:

  • Canadian Commander of the International Space Station, Chris Hadfield, offers readers extraordinary stories from his life as an astronaut, and shows how to make the impossible a reality in his first book, An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth.
  • I Am Malala is the heroic story of Malala Yousafzai's stand for the right to education against a Taliban regime in Pakistan. Read as she recounts her courageous story—one that almost took her life—of perseverance and strife that lead to her becoming the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize.
  • Scott Anderson's Lawrence In Arabia is a striking piece of non-fiction that definitively overturns the conventional wisdom on how the modern Middle East was formed. Based on four years of intensive primary document research, Anderson brilliantly captures the way the folly of the past creates the anguish of the present.

The Indigo Spotlight program introduces readers to a new standout title every month selected and curated by our expert book buyers.

We're pleased to announce that November's Indigo Spotlight title is Thank You For Your Service by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist David Finkel. Continuing the story that began with The Good Soldiers, where Finkel shadowed US infantryman in Baghdad, he now follows many of the same men as they return home and struggle to reintegrate with their families and society at large.
